At present, mobile phone viruses are imitating the common destructive methods of computer viruses, such as "crashing", "terminating applications", "family of derived variants", "wireless intrusion", "camouflage free software" and even "stealing information". After the virus invades the mobile phone, it may cause the loss of the operating functions of files, phone books, messages, photos and the phone itself. Generally speaking, although the mobile phone virus begins to imitate the computer virus, but its active spreading power is weak, it is not easy to be infected if it is not easy to use Bluetooth to receive unknown text messages. The following is to share with you how to avoid Bluetooth virus in your phone and how to remove it after poisoning.

What is the Bluetooth virus

The first case of "Bluetooth virus" in the mainland is the Cabir virus (piranha, Caribe is the English displayed on the phone screen after poisoning), which is transmitted to the user's phone through the Bluetooth function of the phone. The reaction after poisoning is a sharp drop in electricity, greatly shortening the normal standby time. Although it is called "Bluetooth virus", Cabir virus does not infect all mobile phones with Bluetooth function, but some smartphones with built-in SymbianS60 operating system, such as Nokia 7610, 6600 and so on. The world's first conceptual virus that can be transmitted between mobile phones is "Kabir" (Worm/Symbian.Cabir.a).
